Irish bagpipes solo, HMV IM354. A marching tune relating to the Irish Rebellion of 1798, followed by a song written by Jack Sheehan, a Republican prisoner in Hare Park Prison Camp in County Kildare, in 1924. These two present either end of a spectrum of difficulty for pipers, Who Fears to Speak of '98 is somewhat tricky to play while Legion of the Rear Guard is an excellent tune for a beginner, especially for learning to use the regulators.
More of Leo's 78 RPM recordings may be heard on the CD "Classics of Irish Piping" on the Topic label. Leo's 50s LP Ri Na Bpiobairi (The King Of The Pipers) has also been reissued on CD. Walton's has published an excellent book of Leo's transcriptions, the Leo Rowsome Collection of Irish Music.
